Last of the long weekends...part 2.


We had a fabulous day out in the sunshine (and wind!). 

After a visit to a Garden Center we headed out to a lovely quaint little pub. I've been there a few times but the sunshine 'opened' my eyes.

 The pub sits in front of a beautiful green. If you look closely you can see brightly coloured bunting around the perimeter of the grass...I reckon it was left from St.Georges Day or the Royal Wedding.

Just by the pub is a tranquil pond with a few ducks...the perfect place for a picnic.

As it was such a perfect day we all reckoned the pub garden would be jam packed...it was so nice that it SHOULD OF BEEN JAM PACKED!!


It was empty...literally...we were so lucky.

 Sun, a packet of crisps and an ice cold Pepsi is all I need to keep me happy in a pub garden.

After the pub we had a little walk around the quiet village and I fell in love.

Little cottages covered in Wisteria lined the roads. 

Flowers everywhere.
You can imagine people from the village gathering on the green for their annual BBQs....everyone knows eachother...everyone helps out one another.
You could feel a sense of community in the air.....it was all really lovely.

It is somewhere where Ian & I can dream of living...somewhere similar.....maybe one day.

  1. Hi Gem - just popping in to say 'Hi'

    Thanks for the brownie question - that's a toughie as I have so many different variations I use, but I guess I would have to say Nigella's is my favourite. Here's the link ::


    hope that helps?

    Have a beautiful day,

  4. It is so beautiful! What I would do for a quaint little pub to be anywhere close to where I live. The park pictures are really pretty!
